apt-get cannot guess what kind of kernel/kernel modules you'd like to
install, so it picks one of the available ones.

Always use install for kernel upgrades and kernel module installation
for this new kernel, e.g.


apt-get install kernel-module-{foo,bar}-$NEWKERNEL
(will pull in the proper kernel, too)
